Well, the good news is that the scissor trusses (replacements for the wrong ones installed in the living room a couple of days ago) have arrived!

The bad news is that not much else has gotten done since my last post.

Weather moved in on Monday, and hung in through today's festivities (which you can see from the pics below). The crew tried to get some work done Monday afternoon, but basically got chased out by the changing weather, and Tuesday was "a mudfest combined with a blizzard", according to reports--they got up there and turned around immediately.

There was some hope that today would be good enough to get some work done and it actually was here in the Springs proper--we hit the mid-40s in town--but the storm had retreated to the foothill canyons (such as the one Tanglewood graces) and the only thing that got accomplished was to offload the scissor trusses. I was quietly amazed that they were even able to deliver them to the site to be honest, and I understand that it was only because of heavy use of snow chains and 4-wheel drive that they did. (Well, experience counted for part of this as well--the driver was the same guy who got lost on his first trip up, but otherwise impressed us with his skill on the road.)

And so... not much progress since the 6th. Some days/weeks are busier than others, I reckon.

The first batch of scissor trusses arrive! Note the snowfall; it picked up just as the crew got the trusses up there.
Checking the load sheet.
Looking out of the house towards the deck. Note the spare LiteDeck stacked over to one side.
There's more water inside than I would like, but that's because the roof isn't all there yet. The LiteDeck is holding a lot of heat, so when the snow hits it--you get water.
These are the 'bad' trusses that will be replaced with the scissor trusses.
